    safe removal ballon notification has disappeared, icon still in tray


    Win 10 from Win 7 HP laptop2000 240CA, 64 bit I am really stumped and need help, please.


    My problem is I have theremove icon in the pop up from the taskbar tray (see photos) I do not get theballoon notification any longer that say Safe To Remove Hardware any longer.This happens whether I use flash drives or portable Seagate hard drives. I usedto get the balloon message.

    I check in settings allseems to be on. I think, but not sure if this all of a sudden happened when Iplugged in my friend's brand new san disc usb 3 flash drive to give him a 50second video of his late wife.
    I am stumped and have spenthours looking. Can you suggest what I am missing? I do not want to lose info onmy drives. Thank You Ron

    Safely Remove Hardware And Eject Media' icon missing from the notification tray in windows 10.

    My icon is missing from the notification tray. I've gone into settings and the "Safely Remove Hardware And Eject Media' icon is switched to the on position, but it isn't in notifications or the taskbar. I also tried switching on the "Always show all icons
    in the notification area" button at the top of the settings page and it still didn't show up int the tray. How can I get it to show back up? I need a SIMPLY, easy fix as I am not a wiz on computers.

    Eject Flash Drive confirmation message missing

    It's not ideal but the USB icon does momentarily disappear from the System tray while it is closing down the drive**. It reappears when the device has been closed so it is then safe to remove.

    ** When the USB icon disappears, a different type of USB icon appears for an instant during the closing down and then it disappears when the normal one re-appears.

    To eject the currently connected device, open command prompt and type-
    rundll32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll then Enter.
    To enable icon again, go into Action Center>Taskbar>Select which icons appear ***>Windows Explorer safely remove *** and turn On. Plug in a usb stick and if icon still missing, open Task Manager, close Windows Explorer process, let it restart. Should re-appear.

    For safe eject USB notification missing:• Press keyboard "win + R"• Type "regedit"• Search the value "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Notification\Settings\Microsoft.Explore r.Notification.{...}"• If you REG_DWORD 0x00000001(0) set "0" you can double click on value. Set the value data to "1"• Click "OK"

    I have seen this occasionally. A Restart is usually all that's needed to get back to normal. Shut down may not be sufficient to reset everything, not if you have fast start turned on. A restart will do a complete shut down then a full start up. It's always best to try the simplest solution first,

    Tried that, did not work so I did the registry entry and it works like before. Thanks for the reply.

    First of all, thanks for the fix. However, you need to fix a space that shows up in this thread as well as other posts where you placed this fix. I suspect that is why people are having trouble finding it in the registry....they are copying and pasting (like lazy me) the text from your post, which has the text:

    Microsoft.Explore<SPACE HERE>r.Notification

    What is weird however, is that the space does not show up when I quote your text, but shows up in the post. In the past I have noticed that happens when I copy and paste to the forums from another place. For instance I may write something in Word, copy to the forum, realized I need to make a change and copy it back. All kinds of extra spaces show up. I believe invisible characters get injected.

    Thanks, I'm copying from OneNote & there's no space in the text but in future will check before posting.

    safe removal ballon notification has disappeared, icon still in tray

    This has happened only after I applied the 1703 update: I insert a USB drive. I click on the 'Safely Remove' icon in the tray. I click 'Eject'. No 'Safe to remove' message appears. This behavior never varies, even if I don't read or write to the drive.

    I looked for the registry entry mentioned above (Microsoft.Explorer.Notification), but it isn't there. (See Hairy Scot's post above.) What to do?
